    Windows Explorer spins on Right-Click


    Hello all,


    I've been encountering a problem on a number of machines with the following symptoms:

    • Right-clicking a file in File Explorer/Desktop takes about 5 minutes for the context menu to open.
    • Clicking Run As Administrator in the Start Menu is unresponsive.
    • File Explorer is slow/unresponsive sometimes while navigating.
    • OneDrive is having problems starting/logging in/opening files/etc.


    I've tried a number of solutions:

    • Windows Reset - This has worked on most machines, but the problem returned after a few days on one machine.
    • sfc /scannow - This seems to find and fix corrupted files, but the symptoms remain.
    • Removing context menu items ShellExView - No change.
    • Deleting ContextMenuHandlers from the registry.
    • Repair Upgrade - I cancelled it after it appeared to be stalled.
    • Updating Windows/Drivers.


    This has been a problem on five machines so far and all in the last couple of weeks. We have recently been migrating to Sharepoint/Onedrive so my hunch is that somehow Onedrive is corrupting File Explorer. Any tips?


    Thanks,

    Sebastian

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Microsoft Internet Explorer renamed to Windows Internet Explorer ?

    Since version 7 of the world`s most popular web browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer was silently renamed to Windows Internet Explorer.Such a step from Microsoft is not a surprise since Internet Explorer is part of the Windows operation system for a long time.Obviously Microsoft corp. wants to state that Internet Explorer is already considered as a part of Windows and not as an external browser (remember the IE and WMP law issues last year!?).
